Way too small or sized incorrectly. I would have liked this but it's so small that I can't even hook the strap! Each end doesn't reach to close it.

I was looking for a cute, comfortable shoe, with not too much "bling!" to wear to a formal birthday party next month. This one fit the bill. It's very cute in person. Unfortunately, the color clashes with my dress. Besides that, try as I might, I just can't walk in slides.

Back again buying another 2 pairs in Pewter (have worn out 3 pairs of Pewter already), and in Champagne size 8. Live in Florida and this shoe can be worn dressed up or down. Perfect wedge (not too much of an incline if you have back issues) and just enough to give you a little bump up. I wear these shoes every day! Super comfortable! Runs a half size smaller than usual. Normally wear a size 7 1/2, but in these, a size 8 works perfectly. So pleased they keep these perfect shoes in stock. Hope they are never discontinued.

Cute shoe on, very comfortable to wear. The straps gap a little and do not lay flat against the arch of the foot. The foot bed is wide and fits a little sloppy. A half size smaller would do the trick, but shoe does not come in half sizes. Need to return.

Super cute and comfortable but terrible quality. Left shoe's center stitching just pooped apart after 4th wearing & plastic base color wears off with ever bump or ding to reveal a white color under the dark brown. Very disappointed because so cute and comfortable.

These say in the description they are leather, but I could tell immediately they are not.The sticker on the bottom says "synthetic upper and lining man made outsole." This is a change from all my other Athena Alexander sandals, and I have many. I first found this brand at Nordstrom and since I wear a hard to find 5, I was delighted. They fit great, had a wedge heel to give height but stability, and they are leather. I wonder if their quality is declining. The straps aren't as supple and the lining where you place your foot makes your foot stick, whereas with leather it seems to be much more comfortable on the sole of your foot. The style is cute and versatile, but I will be returning these.

Runs very small. FELT TWO SIZES too small. I normally wear a 7 1/2. This size 8 shoe felt like a size 6. I could not get my feet in.

These were extremely comfortable. I tried them on at the store, so I got a bigger size than normal. They were one of my favorite pairs of shoes. However, I had them for about 3 months - wore them probably once a week - and the middle ripped open. The threads were also popping/fraying at the seams.

My only gripe with this is that I wish they come in half sizes. I normally wesr size 8 but for some reason this shoe is a bit snug on my toes. A 8.5 would have been a perfect fit but still I'm keeping them cause they are just too cute and comfortable. You can either dress up or down with these shoes.

I love these shoes! I previously bought similar styles from two other brands and had to return them both as they were very uncomfortable, so the 3rd try was a charm. The only thing I don't like is they're not real leather. But they are comfortable and fit well. I did have to punch an extra hole in the strap because it was too loose, even on the tightest hole. It's really easy and looks very professional if you happen to have a screw punch laying around!

For someone who wears tennis shoes for work everyday these are amazing! Very true to size and comfortable. I wore these for a straight 8 hours and did a lot of walking. The heel felt very sturdy which was important for me.

This brand runs one whole shoe size too small. I wish it had worked out because I really liked the shoe. It was light weight and very comfortable.

Really never write reviews. This shoe fits perfectly and is so comfortable- right out of the box! Hides all the imperfections of my feet. Looking for other colors, but there are none in this style. Very true to size- none too large for my foot size 11. Soft leather. Fits snugly, but nicely. Comfy. Have never had this brand before, but will look for it again.

I LOVE these shoes. I had a pair just like them and wore them out. I just got these and they are as comfortable as my old ones. They can be worn anywhere, with almost anything. They run a little short and are a bit narrow, so just adjust as needed. A great shoe!

Have worn Athena for years. One of their t-strap sandals I wore for 3 weeks straight while walking and working daily to an Orphanage in Ethiopia. Comfortable! Like slippers! I was in my 50's! and can't live w/o them! In fact the strap just broke on a pair I had purchased in 2008! Quality sandal!

Love these shoes. Hope the metallic-coloring on the straps holds out because they are hot and super comfortable!

I'm a size 8, medium wide, ordered a size 9 as was suggested but couldn't begin to get it on my foot. My friend who is a size 7 1/2 put it on and it fit perfectly. I wouldn't recommend a shoe company that can't get the size anywhere near right on any of their products.

Bought these wonderful sandals to go with my "Mother of the Bride"outfit. They were comfortable right out of the box and I received many compliments that evening. Also look great with jeans and a fun top! Just a great sandal all around!

I generally love the AA brand and have been lucky with the fit of their size 5. The shoe is very cute but the back rise (from the heel bed to the ankle strap) is too long so that my foot flops around in the shoe when I try to walk. It maybe because my foot is a size 5, and the rise might work fine for larger sizes, but for me it didn't work at all. The heel height and everything else is great.

Loved them right out of the box. They make a little noise form the flower but unless you are very sensitive to such you will not notice it. Doesn't bother me a bit.
